PAY NO ATTENTION TO CATALOG NUMBERS THEY DONT MIRROR PRODUCTION CHANGES.

Variously carrying #14 or #16 catalog numbers it's properly called the Gibbs Normal. The +/- reflect the different gap/exposure on each side of the head. The Adjustable gets all the attention but the all metal version of the Normal is my favorite Gibbs of all, the only one with good weight and balance. Patent 1942.

Thanks for that. I’m assuming that the all metal versions were brass construction? And all metal versions had the differing gap/exposure on either side?
Yes to differential exposure, and judging from the areas of worn plating I would say yes to brass .[Image: a3ec5a23f38f67b2289f1da14073d8fd.jpg]
